    The "SafeSearch Filter" is the option we need.
    It says underneath it, "SafeSearch is not active." The icon on the right-hand side of the screen is gray. This means it's inactive. This function helps to keep us safe while searching the internet by Google. It will filter out some of the adult topics. If there is anything that is unsuitable or graphic in nature, it will help to filter the adult content. That way, we won't see it while searching.
